Hogan Gives a Birthday Party - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: The footage of the bomber's nomenclature Hogan and his men commandeer switches several times from during the takeoff, the bombing run, then the end of the bombing run - three different types of planes.

Hogan Gives a Birthday Party - S2-E1

Factual error: When the crew in the plane gets ready to drop the bombs on the refinery, Hogan (in the pilot seat) tells Carter (who is looking through the bomb sight) exactly when to push the button. In fact, the pilot of a WW2 bomber had no way of even knowing when exactly to release the bombs - it was the job of the bombardier, looking through his targeting optics, to know that. Carter at the bomb sight should be telling Hogan how exactly to steer to get the bombs onto the target.
